For those who have created RIMS or HERMS with complex plumbing in place how do you clean out the mash tun keg?

Normally I would just say turn it upside down and spray with a hose but if you have inlet/outlet connections do you have to disconnect all these after every brew? Or are there clever tricks?

I don't have hard piping but you've got the answer anyway. Disconnect, tip upside down the hose out. You can't CIP (clean in place) in our systems as far as I can think of. The grain just wont go through the manifold ;) :p, I guess if you had the right pump you could pump it out (a magnetic/march wont do this).

Cheers.
